Interesting question for those of us who are not professionals for whom 
multiple simultaneous use is a given.

I have two M bodies that I do use simultaneously maybe half the time I am 
out shooting, usually with a 50 on one and either a 25 or 35 on the other 
and a 90/2,8 Elmarit in a pocket. Most often the 50 is on an M4 with 
Kodachrome and the 25 or 30 is on an M6 with b+w, either Tri-X or 400 TCN.

The other half I'm with the M6 and three lenses, having decided to be b+w or 
color during that seance.
